[OFF TOPIC] magic library?


Is there such a thing as a library that would provide the functionality of
the file command?  I want to be able to determine the type of a file I
would open.  I don't want to spawn a "file" command (e.g.: via system or
exec) from my own software since that would incur some slight overhead and
since it seems like it shouldn't be necessary.
